As The Daily Wire reported yesterday, far-left New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this week his candidacy for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. He is the 24th Democrat to run and, according to polling and prediction markets alike, has a very slim chance of ultimately securing the nomination.
“The Dems are getting another beauty to join their group,” President Donald Trump snarkily tweeted on Thursday morning. “Bill de Blasio of NYC, considered the worst mayor in the U.S., will supposedly be making an announcement for president today. He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man. NYC HATES HIM!”
Now, the head of New York City Police Benevolent Association (PBA), the union that represents about two-thirds of NYPD officers, has weighed in. And it’s a doozy.
The PBA’s official Twitter account tweeted: “#BREAKING Statement from PBA President Lynch on [Mayor Bill de Blasio’s] Presidential Run. “While the mayor of our nation’s largest city is busy running around Iowa and getting upstaged by the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, there are real problems here at home.”
Remarkably, even the overwhelming majority of de Blasio’s own constituents do not want the hardcore leftist to seek the presidency. Axios notes that “76% of registered voters in New York do not think de Blasio should run for president, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.” Axios also highlights some of the other staunch criticisms that de Blasio has faced since announcing his presidential bid:
